    Hi,

    I'd like to update my D855, 32GB, from Android 5 to a later version of Android.

    I have a Mac and I'm not too technically minded - many Youtube videos and internet How To's are for PCs and seem to require bits of know-how - I don't want to brick my phone by making mistakes.

    The phones Settings > Update Center says there's a software update available - it downloads but won't install.

    Can you help ....

    Is it possible to update to a later version of Android without rooting? Android 6 or later would be good.

    Or do I have to root the phone before I can update? (I bought the phone in Israel from a carrier but no longer use their services.)

    In either case is there a really clear description I could follow? (if a computer is necessary, I have a Mac)

    Thanks, Tom.
